There is an excellent set of audio tapes out by Doc Wayne which are double talk for magicians (and other speakers and entertainers). He teaches a number of double talk techniques as well as giving multiple examples.

Is this supposed to be presented with a straight face? I imagine it is funnier when you look completely serious.

I love Norm Crosby I saw him in the late 80's or so when he was at the pinochle of his career.

Victor Borge does kind of a funny bit with his "inflationary language" where words that contain numbers or groups of letters that sound like numbers are modified to the next highest number. Does anyone remember this. You look wonderful tonight becomes you look two-derful three-night. Or, he was a cap-eleven in the air five-ce.

My favorite was, instead of I ate a tenderloin, I nined an elevenderloin.

Let's not forget the famous Leo Gorcey who made this a staple in the comedy world way back in the 30's and 40's.

Politicians are the best double-talkers around... I think GW has written an entirely new dictionary hasn't he?

Done properly, it certainly adds a bit of creativity, and humor to an act.

Tom Burgoon (comedy magician from Missouri) has a brilliant and hilarious routine with a card trick where all the beginning letters are switched around in his patter... The ending is worth doing the trick for. It's called, "Dyslexic Card Trick" and it is available on his sebwite- http://tomburgoon.com/onlinestore.html

I've told the story of "Rindercella" in my show for quite some time. I use a background track with music and sound effects created just for my story.

If interested check out my site or contact me privately.

Tim is your Rindercella any different aside from the sound effects than Archie Campbell's?

That was one of the funniest lines I have ever read! "PINOCHLE" of his career," indeed! I understand his act PLAYED well. And he used a special deck. Smile

Joey,

Yes...basically what I am providing is the "soundtrack" that goes behind the story. I've found that it adds so much to have the music and sound effects.

The script is basically the same, and there are many funny spoonerisms to be found on the net.

All the best,
Tim

MALAPROPISM: Using a similar-sounding wrong word. Example: "He is the very pineapple of politeness" (Instead of "pinnacle")

SPOONERISM: Exchanging the beginnings of words in a phrase to produce real words that are surreal and/or don't make sense together. Example: "You have deliberately tasted two worms!" (Instead of "you have deliberately wasted two terms (i.e., terms of the academic year).)

DOUBLETALK: Can be either speech that sounds like real words but isn't (Norm Crosby), or speech made up of real words that (mostly) don't make sense together (Professor Irwin Corey).

A friend and I used to double-talk in French. We would string random French words together and have each other in stiches! It's surprisingly much easier to double talk in another language!

I seem to recall a pamphlet style book called jargon-X years ago that was all about this kind of talk... Also saw an episode of That's Incredible or possibly Real People that had an older gent who used to do this quite well and effectively foible cashiers and folks in the public.

In schizofrenics, it used to be called Word Salad-

Durwood Fincher. One of the funniest corporate acts I've seen. Some great videoclips on his site.

I went to the doctors yesterday for my yearly physical.

I didn’t know my doctor was interested in magic until he asked me how my ball movements were.
I told him that my French Drop was okay but I was having a little trouble with my Final Load.
He told me to bend over so he could rectal-fry the situation.

In the end it turned out to be a really crappy day.

ps please be kind it's my 1st try at this

Does anyone know if Pete's routine has been put in print? It sounds like just a wonderful presentation frame for a magic routine.
